I am behind on getting projects finished and new posts up. My hubby was on spring break last week and for whatever reason when he’s home I am so unproductive. It’s not his fault but I just feel like sitting around when he’s here during the week. I really should take advantage of him being able to take care of the boys so that I could have alone time to work on things. It never seems to work out that way though.
So to help get back on track I have a super simple and easy dice bag pattern for you. These little bags could be used for dozens of things. I made them with gamers in mind. I’m sending some with my husband to a gaming convention that he’s setting up a booth at in a few weeks. I’ll admit I don’t know a lot about that world but I assume that a little carrying bag could come in handy.

Simple Dice/Goodie Bag
- Worsted Weight (4) Yarn
- H/8 5.0mm Hook
- Tapestry Needle
Stitches Used (US Terms):
- MR- Magic Ring
- DC- Double Crochet
- 2DC- Double Crochet Increase, 2 DC in same stitch to increase
- SC- Single Crochet
- Ch- Chain
- Sl st- Slip Stitch
Notes: Bag is worked in joined rounds. Unless stated, each round will begin with a Ch 2 and end with a sl st to the first stitch of the round. Chains do NOT count as stitches.
1) Using the Magic Ring technique (OR Ch 2, join with sl st to first Ch to form a ring), 11 DC into ring. Pull ring tight. (11)
2) 2DC in each st around. (22)
3) *DC in next, 2DC;* Repeat from * to * around. (33)
4-11) DC in each st around. (33)
12) Ch 1, SC in each st around. (33)
Finish Off, Weave in Ends.
In the same or coordinating color, tightly Chain a length of about 12”, long enough to go around the bag with a couple of inches extra on both sides. Weave in and out on Round 9. I started around the front side and wove around every 2 stitches. This will leave a 3 stitch gap where you will tie together. You can do it however you feel like it. You can also use any other type of tie you can find. Ribbon, string, shoelace, etc.
I don’t think Dominoes is really the kind of gaming that people would need these bags for. But it’s a decent size reference. 🙂
